I AM JESSE
Jesse Sharer (I AM JESSE) grew up in NY musically submerged in soulful classic rock from Zeppelin to Hendrix influenced heavily by his father a 60s rock drummer for The Balloon Farm. Like most born in the early 1970s , the 1980’s were actually the time when the music started to really register in his brain. From New Wave to Hip Hop and Club music alike (which at the time often shared the same bed) Jesse’s teenage soundtrack was very colorful. Now based in Tokyo Jesse runs an event called “Tokyo Was Here” getting into stuff like 80/90s Club, Techno , Acid , House , Freestyle , New Jack Swing , Jersey Club , Hip Hop , Funk , Soul , R&B etc .
